Want to elect strong advocates for reproductive rights? You can play a meaningful role in electing and re-electing champions for reproductive rights, health, and freedom to the Massachusetts Legislature by joining the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund's Electoral Volunteer Corps.
What is the Electoral Volunteer Corps? It's a volunteer leadership and training program for Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund supporters and volunteers. EVC members commit to devoting 4 hours per week to supporting PPAF's endorsed candidates across the state, and receive training, one-on-one coaching from organizers, and the opportunity to represent our movement in some of 2018's most competitive state legislative races.
Electoral Volunteer Corps members will support candidates and their campaigns by knocking on doors, making phone calls, and helping with data or events when needed. They'll also participate in weekly statewide calls with PPAF's organizing leadership and with EVC members from across the state, and receive special swag. No campaign experience? No problem! We'll provide the training and support you need to get comfortable with the work!
The program will kickoff with our first statewide training on Sunday, September 9th at 1055 Commonwealth Avenue in Boston. Based on interest, we're also looking to schedule training days in Worcester and Springfield.
There will be three different "teams" in the Electoral Volunteer Corps:
- Travel Team (from Boston, Worcester, or Springfield): Members will participate in a Day of Action Canvass each weekend with a PPAF organizer, and travel regionally to different campaigns for priority candidates
- Ambassadors Team: Members will be assigned to a campaign for a priority candidate and spend time there each week knocking on doors and helping the campaign with other needs
- Phone Banking Team: Members will attend weekly phone banks at PPAF offices and community spaces and/or help organize phone banks in their own communities
